The tiCrypt Connect application allows a user to connect to their secure system, without it the user will not be able to access the system.
The tiCrypt Connect application launches in the user's browser. The supported tiCrypt browsers are:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Microsoft Edge
Once the tiCrypt Connect application installation process is completed, users will need to launch the application and upload a deployment file (.dep file) given to them by their institution. This action is a one time action that will upload instructions on how to find the server for your specific deployment. Click on UPLOAD DEPLOYMENT FILE to upload the file. The file can be uploaded from your local machine or can be pulled from a valid URL.
Users can also manage the deployments that they have within the system as seen in the video below. It may be the case that your institution makes changes to the deployment and you need to erase the old one and import the new one. You can do so as seen in the video below.
Manage the frontend versions
Once you have imported your deployement file, you also need to import the frontend. New frontends get released all the time, so it is good practice to import them as you gain access to them. Select the "version management" and select the file as seen in the video below.
You can also delete the frontend versions the same way that you import them as seen below.
Alter the connect
It may be the case that a user has something running on the tiCrypt default port (8080) and they would like to change this. Users can alter the default port on which tiCrypt runs by selecting the settings icon in the top right of the screen BEFORE they launch. A modal will appear that gives a recommended range of ports to use. If the port is not within the given ranges, then part of the system will not work. PLEASE choose a port that is within 8080 - 8089. After clicking save, the next time the user launches it will be on the new port.
It may be the case that a user would like tiCrypt to be launched in a specific browser. Users can alter this by selecting the settings icon in the top right of the screen BEFORE they launch. A modal will appear that has two sections that need to be specified for the browser. tiCrypt has three predefined browsers to choose from: Google chrome, Firefox, and Opera. To switch between those three, select the Predefined for the first entry box and select one of the three for the second entry box.
If a user would like to explicity and manually enter the browser, they must select "Manual Entry" and in the second box they must define the path at which the application exists on their local computer.
